Artist Ally

Yoji Shinkawa is best known for his character and mecha designs for the Metal Gear series of games, but he is also noted for designing the poster art for the movies Pacific Rim and Godzilla: Final Wars. Yoji Shinkawa’s style is heavily comic book based and inspired by a mix of Anime art styles and western art styles from the likes of Frank Miller, Yoshikazu Yasuhiko, Aubrey Beardsley, and Yoshitaka Amano. Yojis Shinkawa’s style uses high contrast and shadows to create forms and characters, I admire the use of shadows primarily and wanted to focus on this with my own art works I have done in the past and have currently created.
